How Bruno Fernandes’ league stats in 20-21 compare with Kevin De Bruyne’s

Manchester City‘s Kevin De Bruyne beat Manchester United‘s Bruno Fernandes to the PFA Player of the Year award in 2020-21 – but how did the two compare? 

De Bruyne has now won the award in two consecutive seasons but Fernandes has also been in brilliant form since arriving in England in January 2020.

We’ve compared Fernandes’ Premier League record in 2020-21 with De Bruyne’s to see who comes out on top.

Fernandes unsurprisingly offered much more of a goal threat than De Bruyne, taking 41 more shots and scoring seven more open play goals.

But the Belgium international registered the same amount of assists in 12 fewer games and also made more key passes per 90 minutes.
